About The Conference

iGlobal Forum was pleased to host the 6th Specialty Finance Summit in New York on September 7th and 8th. Opportunities within the specialty finance space are shifting as alternative lenders become more active, and online marketplace lenders draw in customers of their own. New fintech developments are fighting for survival in a competitive space as valuations affect the success of investments, and investors look forward for strategies to protect their capital in the event of a downturn market. Shifting investment trends, the global impact of the Brexit vote, and national macroeconomic trends are greatly affecting the availability of investments and capital, and building out the popularity of niche sectors providing unexpected opportunities. Demand in the middle market is still on the rise, but standing out has never been more important. At the summit, we had the opportunity to meet and network with 200+ senior-level executives from leading: specialty finance companies, marketplace lenders, BDCs, SBICs, private equity firms, hedge funds, wealth management firms, senior lenders, asset managers, and venture capital firms.
